Pretty things kind of have my heart 💗
Give me all the desert shoots and all the couples that will laugh their faces off throughout the entire evening.
The sun sets everyday but some sunsets you never forget. Here’s to a beautiful one down in Jamaica 🇯🇲 #bradyhousephotographers
if you haven’t seen our story yet, we ended up getting a new pet today!! no, it’s not a baby raptor unfortunately, but it’s a dwarf hamster & we named her Elsa (to go with our lil’ Olaf) & she’s adorable😍🐹
I don’t know if I’ll ever really get over these trees. I think I could do a session here day after day and never grow tired of them. What a better place to capture your love than under old trees like these? A place that is rooted, ever-growing, ever-changing - a shelter in the storm. I love these two. 🌳💕
☼ Ian + Stephanie's wedding was so beautiful to be a part of. From the love they have for each other down to the smallest of details, their big day was absolutely perfect. They are both so sweet and caring. They love each other unconditionally, and I think that's something we can all learn from. Stephanie was a GORGEOUS bride! Ian is one lucky man to be able to spend forever with her. To see tears fill his eyes when Steph walked down the aisle proves that he completely agrees. He is so sweet, and Steph is lucky to have a man who so deeply cares about her. So thankful to have been a part of such a special day. Congrats to the new Mr. + Mrs. Burkhart! May God bless you and your marriage! ☼
Well, I knew this day was coming... Today, we got word that we will be moving to Norfolk, Virginia before the holiday seasons 💙 .
I was secretly, kinda hoping my husband’s next duty station was going to be here
But I’m also ready to live somewhere new; isn’t that what the Navy is about after all? Exploring the world? ✈️ . .
It’s bitter sweet because my business started here and it blossomed here ✌🏼 .
I am going to miss every single one of y’all in Hawaii 💜
This week has been so exciting no wonder why it’s flown by so quickly!! @caitlinkwu
have been enjoying their Italian honeymoon, we booked a few of our first weddings with some AMAZING companies and #thislife
just keeps getting better. Hope you both are having the time of your lives eating as much pasta as you can. Ps I love pasta 🙋🏽♂️

ONE more week till these guys say I do :)))
I took a long break on IG, for several reasons, but mostly because I’m fairly private online. But that’s changing and I’m back, Instagram community! This week, I’m sharing a photo session that I did with this wonderful couple, Mie and Ryu. More about them, soon.
happy freakin weekend!!!! 👐🏽👐🏽 these two + their perfect oahu wedding are up on the blog (and so are a million other sessions yay!!) so go check em outtt!! 😍🙌🏽
Tears & first looks & all the wedding day emotions.
This sunroom was a dream ✨✨ I want to spend a morning with a cup of coffee here ☕️👌
Nicole + Justin
Can we just start with.. that’s our frickin’ couple, they should be on the cover of a Maui magazine! Like come on now!
Meet Nicole & Justin. They’re from California and came to this beautiful island, to get married. They wanted a traditional style Hawaii wedding. Nicole wanted to look native as possible.. and she killed it! They also, have four beautiful kids who were all so cute and beautiful just like her! These two and there family were so awesome!
Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for letting us be apart of your special day and sharing this beautiful island with y’all.
I gave some loving to my website this week, updating the slideshow images and such. It's so enjoyable to go back and get lost in adventures past. Loved this day with Tony and Meredith last summer. These two visited me in my town recently and it's really a beautiful thing when clients become friends.
These two brides wholly in the moment on the dance floor! More on the blog. Link in bio!
It’s their wedding tomorrow and I’m going as a guest with greg and I’m so so excited to enjoy a wedding from this side of it with my best friend and some of my best girls and get to party and dance!!!
Heyyy 👋🏻 it’s Friday and there are a lot of new faces around here so this is me! Very random fact, Randi is a name I used to think was lame as a kid (I even introduced myself as Brandi for a long time) but now I love my name 😂
I live on Oahu with my favorite guy and two quirky little parrots 🐦🐤 we love hiking so much we even bought birdie backpacks so they can get outside with us. Some fun facts:
1. When I got my first tattoo, I immediately got another one 🖤 it was a sign because now I have 8!
2. I am a little obsessed with the 60s. Fashion, music, the whole vibe, all of it ✌🏻
3. I really only started traveling internationally in 2013. Up until then, I’d only been down to Mexico. Now I’ve been to Qatar, Malawi, Canada, Costa Rica, France, Scotland, England, Portugal, and have explored even more of the US + Mexico. I have to say my favorite so far has been Scotland 🙈 so I’m going back in March of 2019!
4. I can never wait for The Bachelor/Bachelorette or Bachelor in Paradise to start 😳
5. I used to be terrified to snorkel (thanks claustrophobia), but then I tried it and had to be pried out of the water because I loved it SO much 🐠

I wanted to make sure I did it right.... I’ve been pretty quiet on this account for a long time. As many of you know I’ve been transitioning back into my own work after many years shooting weddings for a Japanese wedding company. I was quiet for so long because I wanted to make sure that when I began to post again I was ready. That I was processing my work within my deadlines, that I was ready to move forward with the conceptual aspects of my work and that I felt happy with my colors and post processing. Now here I am! I have a TON of beautiful images to share with you and am hoping to work towards more and more cohesive images not only of my clients and the work of my colleagues but of my own styling and designs as well. This is my journey and my hope is to inspire!
HAPPY FRIDAY!!! Every photographers dream: yummy lighting + amazing couple getting hitched!! Happy 1 month to these newly weds making the best decision everrrr!! 💍 xx
Aloha Friday everyone! We made it!
Here are some of the beautiful details from Heather and James’ wedding this past weekend ♥️
Florals: Flowers by Eva (Chinese Cultural Plaza)
celebrated four years of marriage yesterday.
with all of life’s uncertainties - highs, lows, jobs and homes and health - this man is my constant. he has changed the way I think about relationships. and changed the way I feel about myself. both in a really beautiful way. less perfectionism and pressure, more fun and flow. I’m the luckiest to spend my days and travel the world and raise babies with YOU @teddyfulham.
Not gonna lie, yesterday was one of those days where I was not feeling it. I thought, my photos are too green, feed’s not consistent. But ya know, how silly is that?
It’s a reminder not to compare my work to others. Photography is beautiful and vulnerable. Especially couples photography, and it’s not even about us! It’s about the couple and what an honor it is that we get capture the happiest moments of peoples lives, raw love, and beauty.
So I’m gonna keep on posting all the greens because I live in Hawaii and it’s green! Grass is always greener on the other side right? Okay, rant over! ✌🏼 I’m truly so blessed, grateful for this job, and all of my incredible couples! ✨
I'll Venmo $1 to the person who correctly captions how this water fight ended and I'll Venmo $1 to whoever has the most creative caption to how this COULD have ended 😘 that's right.... one... whole... dollar. #HMpresets
